Gridders Face Fourth Straight Loss in Big

Ten Play


Wisconsin Picked by Three Touchdowns;
Game Expected To Attract Under 60,000

Big Ten Race Still Wide Open

Swart Sets Records
In Triangular Victory


Associate Sports Editor
The fruits of losing football hit
their seasonal peak this afternoon
when less than 60,000 fans are
expected to show up for Michi-
gan's battle with Wisconsin and
the goal line.
Kickoff time is 1:30.
The crowd will probably be the
smallest since 1958, when a meager
gathering of 31,000 turned out in
the rain to watch Indiana whip the
Wolverines, 8-6, in Bennie Ooster-
baan's last, home. appearance as
Michigan's coach.
It's sort of a sobering thought,
especially when Michigan State is
packing Spartan Stadium for the
clash with Minnesota.
Three-Touchdown Underdogs
Maybe it's best to blame the
bookies-and the fan's desire for
winning football-who have es-
tablished Michigan State as a 13-
point favorite over Minnesota and
Michigan as a 21-point underdog
to Wisconsin.
The Badgers have been some-
what of a surprise in the Big Ten
this fall, though lost in the tu-

mult over Northwestern. When
pre-season rumblings first began
to find their way across the mid-
west plains from Madison, the em-
phasis was Pat Richter, Pat Rich-
ter, and more Pat Richter with a
smattering of "darkhorse" thrown

The big question was quarter-
back, where no less than eight
candidates were rated an equal
chance to replace All-American
Ron Miller. Miller, if you remem-
ber, passed the Badgers to an aver-
age of 188 yds. per game, tops
in the nation last year.

College Leaders
Seek Bowl Berths

C" i

Battles for bowl berths will
highlight the docket of today's
national football action.
Three of the major New Year's
bowl game trips will be up for
grabs as Nebraska meets Missouri,
USC goes against Washington, and
LSU takes on Mississippi.
There will be orange blossoms
in the air when unbeaten and
once tied Missouri travels to Lin-
coln, Neb., to meet the unbeaten
and untied Nebraska Cornhusk-
ers. Missouri has won five and
played defense-minded Minnesota
to a 0-0 standoff. Meanwhile, Ne-
braska has taken six straight for
its new coach, Bob Devaney.
The teams currently lead the
Big Eight Conference with 3-0
records, followed by Oklahoma at
2-0 and Kansas at 3-1.
Added Interest
The game will have added in-
terest because of the contrast of
Missouri's stingy defense against
Nebraska's high-scoring multiple
offense. Nebraska has been scor-
ing an average of 31 points per
game this season while Missouri
has given up a total of 29 points
in all six of its games. Missouri
has never been scored on by Ne-
Another battle of the unbeatens
is on tap at Baton Rouge, where
Mississippi, 6-0, meets LSU, 5-0-1.
The winner will be a heavy favor-
ite for the Southeastern Confer-
ence title and a trip to Dallas'
Cotton Bowl.
LSU, led by halfback Jerry
Stoval, depends on its ground at-
tack to do the job, while Ole Miss
has kept principally to the air
on the strong arm of passing Wiz-
ard Glen Griffing. Both teams
use relatively simple offenses with
an emphasis on defense.
The Rebels have allowed only
14 points, both touchdowns com-
ing on punt returns. The LSU
Tigers have given up 16 points in
their six games and have shut out
their last two opponents.
Pasadena Bound
The West Coast half of the
Rose Bowl pairing is at stake when
USC entertains Washington. The
Huskies were tied last week by a
powerful Oregon squad and also
in their opening game against'

Purdue, but these are the only
blemishes on their record.
The Golden Bears enter the
game slight favorites to continue
their unbeaten string and main-
tain their third national ranking.
The game will also feature an in-
dividual dual between Southern
Cal's fine passer, Pete Beathard,
and Washington's strong-running
Charlie Mitchell.
In other games, Notre Dame
meets Navy in a renewal of col-
lege football's longest consecutive
rivalry. Unbeaten Dartmouth seeks
to clinch its Ivy League lead
against Yale. Maryland is at Penn
State, Syracuse at Pittsburgh, and
Boston College at Vanderbilt.
Fight, You All
The Southeastern Conference
teams go out-conference against
fellow Southerners when Georgia
hosts North Carolina, Tulane en-
tertains Virginia Tech and Ten-
nessee meets Wake Forest.
The Southwest Conference race
remains a wide open affair, even
though Texas and Arkansas are
conceded to have the most
strength. TCU, with Sonny Gibbs
and company, can remain in con-
tention by beating Baylor. Rice
is a strong favorite over Texas
Tech. Oklahoma plays at Colo-
rado, Kansas at Kansas State, and
Iowa at Oklahoma State in Big
Eight action.
On the West Coast, Stanford,
fresh off its victory over UCLA,
will enter its game with Oregon
as an underdog. Oregon State is
at Washington State, Idaho at
Arizona and Utah State at Ari-
zona State.
Miami (Fla) 25, Kentucky 17
Richmond 17, George Washington 14
Boston 107, Chicago 97

And if there's anything needed
in Wisconsin's pro-type offense,
which Coach Milt Bruhn learn-
ed from Vince Lombardi and the
Green Bay Packers, it's a good
Out of the scramble emerged
Ron VanderKelen, a non-letter-
winning senior with a total game
experience of a minute and a half.
Still chasing him is sophomore
Harry Brandt, a rare lefthander.
With Wisconsin's bevy of quick
sophomore halfbacks and two of
the best ends in the business in
Richter and senior Ron Carlson,
VanderKelen and Brandt have
guided the polished Badger of-
fense to 23 touchdowns in five
games. Victories have come 69-13
over New Mexico State, 30-6 over
Indiana, 17-8 over Notre Dame,
and 42-14 over Iowa.
OSU Stops Richter
Only Ohio State has been able
to contain the attack, and then
only partially. Richter has caught
a touchdown pass in each of his
last nine games with the exception
of the Ohio battle,
The whole thing has left Michi-
gan and Coach Bump Elliott with
a dual problem. Not only must the
Wolverines figure out how to score,
but also how to contain Richter &
About the only encouraging
thing is that Wisconsin has been
scored upon in every game-in-
cluding two touchdowns by lowly
New Mexico State.
To take advantage of this, El-
liott has installed junior Bob
Chandler at quarterback.
Chandler Moves Team
Chandler, who has always been
a good thrower, has been hamper-
ed by a knee injury suffered at
Michigan State two years ago. Last
week, however, he moved Michi-
gan better than anyone had since
the Army game.
Sophomore Bob Timberlake will
remain at the left halfback slot
with Dave Raimey running at right
half. Bill Dodd, the best blocker
of Michigan's fullback corps,
rounds out the backfield. Dodd is
expected to beef up Michigan's
pass protection to give Chandler
time to throw.
'(On this note, keep an eye on
Wisconsin's Jim Nettles. The
Badger's best offensive back last
fall, this year Bruhn has kept
Nettles in the defensive backfield,
where the quick junior picked off
three enemy aerials in the first
three games this fall-one an 89-
yd. TD return. An injury sidelined
him for both the Iowa and Ohio
State games, but the word from
the Badger camp is that he'll be
ready to go.)
Gary Kroner, Wisconsin's ace
place kicker, is also expected to be
ready. He's 12 for 12 on PAT at-
tempts and two for five on field
Long-Established Tradition
This will be the 26th meeting
of the two schools in a series that
began in 1892 with Michigan scor-
ing a 10-6 victory over the Badg-
ers at Madison.
Overall, the Wolverines have
won 18 times, while losing six. One
game ended in a tie.
Wisconsin, however, has won the
last two games since the series was
renewed after a nine-year lapse
since 1950. In 1959 the Badgers,
won 19-10 here, and in 1960 it
was Wisconsin 16-13 at Madison.
It was in that game the Wol-
verines found about the only way
to stop Richter. On the third play
of the game, the big wingman
caught a 36-yd. pass to set up a
Badger touchdown but broke his
collarbone in the process. He was
out for the season.

The Big Ten conference race is
entering the last half of the sea-
son today with six teams still in
the running for the championship.
Besides Michigan's game with
once-beaten Wisconsin in Ann Ar-
bor today, Michigan State takes
on Minnesota, Northwestern plays
Indiana, Ohio State tackles Iowa,
and Purdue goes against Illinois.
A large crowd is expected at
Spartan Stadium in East Lansing
for the Michigan State-Minnesota
game. It is Homecoming week at
Michigan State, and the Spartans
have rolled to four straight vic-
tories after an opening loss to
Two Leaders Clash
Michigan State is the national
leader in rushing offense, and
Minnesota is the national leader
in rushing defense, having allow-
ed an average of only 24 yds. per
game or 23 inches per rush by its
opponents. This is the lowest aver-
age of any college team in the
country in the last 15 years, so the
Spartans' vaunted ground attack
should be given a superb test.
Minnesota has not been par-
ticularly strongson pass defense,
and there is speculation that the
MSU quarterbacks, Charlie Mig-
yanka and Pete Smith, may taxe
to the air.
Minnesota's defense is led by
tackles Bobby Bell and Carl Eller,
while Michigan State's running
game depends on fullback George
Saimes and halfbacks Sherm
Lewis, Dewey Lincoln and Ron
Good Luck!
It is also homecoming at Bloom-
ington, where Indiana is enter-
taining the number-one team in
the country, Northwestern. Hoo-
sier hopes for an upset center
around their fine quarterback,
Woody Moore, and speedy half-
back Mary Woodson.
Ask for Settling
WASHINGTON tom)-The gov-
ernment has urged the Amateur
Athletic Union and the National
Collegiate Athletic Association to
end their feud, it was learned yes-
Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy
acknowledged that federal offi-
cials had expressed "a definite in-
terest" in the 2%-year hassle be-
tween the two major amateur
sports organizations,
Kennedy was reported 'to have
met recently with officials of the
two groups to urge them to re-
solve their differences over con-
trol of the nation's organized
amateur athletic programs.
The Attorney General refused
to confirm or deny the report, but
added, "They know how we feel
about this situation. We hope that
the two groups will get together
and iron out their differences so
that the United States will be well
represented in the Olympics in
It was understood that Ken-
nedYS's participation in attempts
to settle the dispute also included
a meeting last week with Nick
Rodis, former Connecticut football
coach and now a State Depart-
ment specialist in athletic affairs.

Northwestern is leading the na-
tion is passing offense and leads
the Big Ten in five offensive de-
partments. Sophomore quarter-
back Tom Myers of Troy, Ohio,
has shown some of the finest pass-
ing skill the Big Ten has seen in
several years. Though only 19
years old, he has demonstrated
remarkable poise in leading North-
western to its top national rank-
His favorite receiver, flanker
Paul Flatley, has already caught
35 p'asses this year. The strong
Northwestern line is bulwarked by
guard Jack Cvercko and tackle
Joe Czczecko, who played an out-
standing game last week against
Notre Dame.
Best-Laid Plans
Ohio State goes to Iowa City
today to battle Iowa. The Buck-
eyes, rated as the top team in the
country in pre-season polls, have
had their troubles getting started
this year.
Their record is only 3-2 and they
have lost one game in the Big
Ten. Another loss would virtually
eliminate them from title con-
Iowa coach Jerry Burns was
hanged in effigy on the campus
last week, prompting an angry
reply from Athletic Director Forest
Evashevski. Iowans are unhappy
about the fact that the Hawkeyes
have been soundly beaten in their
last two outings, and are hoping

the Buckeye ball-carrying, with
halfbacks Bob Klein and Paul
Warfield used sparingly. Warfield

Billy Joe Armstrong has been
called Ohio State's finest center in
12 years by Hayes. Iowa's >ffense
is led by quarterback Matt Szy-
kowny and halfback Larry Fergu-
son. Ferguson has rushed for a
5.6-yd. average and ranks fourth
in the conference in pass receiving.
Knock on Wood
Illinois is searching for its first
victory in 16 games as the Illini
take on Purdue at Lafayette to-
day. Pete Elliott's crew gave
highly-rated Southern California
quite a battle before bowing last
week, while Purdue rolled over
The Illini showed more spark on
offense due to the accurate pass-
ing of Mike Taliaferro, who cur-
rently ranks third in the Big Ten
in passing. Halfback Ken Zimmer-
man is third in pass receiving.
Purdue has the best total de-
fense in the conference, having
allowed less than three yds. per
play. Ron. DiGravio and Gary Ho-
gan alternate at quarterback, as
do Roy Walker and Gene Donald-
son at fullback.

special To The Daily
LONDON, Ont.-Pam Swart set
two national women's intercolleg-
iate swimming records herelast
night to help Michigan's unde-
feated Women's Swimming Team
defeat three Canadian teams.
Michigan scored 87 points to
Western Ontario's 30, McGill's 29,
and Ontario Agricultural's 5.
Miss Swart broke her own rec-
ord in the 100-yd. freestyle, cutting
.3 of a second off the :59.0 race
she swam against Michigan State
three weeks ago. In the 75-yd. in-
dividual medley, Miss Swart slash-
ed 2.9 seconds off the listed mark.
Suzy Thrasher was second, also
breaking the old record.
Thrasher Wins Fly
Miss Thrasher won the 50-yd.
butterfly event with a time of :30.2
with Jan Snavely second. The 50-
yd. freestyle sprint was taken by
Peggi Wirth in :27.5. Nancy Wager
was second and also took a third
in the 100-yd. freestyle.
In the 50-yd. backstroke, Donna
Conklin won another Wolverine
victory. Karen Kenah backed up
the victory with a third place.
Micki King and June Mori cap-
tured the first two places in the
diving competition. Miss' King
totaled 151.3 points to Miss Mori's
The Michigan 200-yd. freestyle
relay team of Wager, Snavely,

Wirth, and Harriet Saunders won
their event in 2:01.5.
Michigan's only losses were in
the 50-yd. breaststroke and the
syncronized figures contest. Mary
Lou Whitwell captured the breast-
stroke event for Western Ontario
in near-record time. In syncroniz-
ed figures, an event not generally
swum in the United States, Miss
Wager and Miss Wirth only were
able to place above two swimmers
from Ontario Agricultural.
The next meet for the Wolver-
ines will be a rematch with Michi-
gan State at the Women's Pool
this Friday afternoon.
Michigan's first victory of the
season came three weeks ago at
East Lansing by a score of 61-25.

We went to the mountain to
make 1963 Ford-built cars
go 30,000 to 100,000
miles between major
chassis lubrications
Quite a task faced Ford Motor Company
engineers when they set out to eliminate the
traditional trip to the grease rack every
1,000 miles.
Like Mohammed, they went to the mountain-
Bartlett Mountain on the Continental Divide in
Colorado. More molybdenite is mined there
than in the rest of the world combined. And
from molybdenite ore comes the amazing
"moly" grease that helps extend the chassis
lubrication intervals for Ford-built cars. This
grease sticks tenaciously to metal, stands up
under extreme pressures and resists moisture,
pounding and squeezing. It is slicker than
skates on ice!
New, improved seals were developed. Bushings,
bearings and washers of many materials were
investigated. Slippery synthetics, like nylon
and teflon, were used a number of new ways.
The search for means to extend chassis lubri-
cation also led to New Orleans-where
experimental suspension ball joints tested in
taxicabs in regular service went two years
without relubrication.
It took time. And ingenuity. But the effort paid
off when Ford-built cars were the first to build
in chassis lubrication good for 30,000 miles or
two years-whichever came first.
Another assignment completed-another
"Ford First" and another example of how Ford
Motor Company provides engineering leader-
